If you thought fake news was a problem, Amanda Bynes wants you to know that fake social media accounts are also an unbeatable epidemic.

The former Nickelodeon star has sent multiple legal letters to Twitter and Instagram demanding they shut down accounts that impersonate the actress and encourage fans to send “Amanda” money!

Tamar Arminak, Amanda’s attorney, tells TMZ they’ve been fighting Twitter for years to shut down the account @persianLA27, which regularly tells its over 24,000 followers that “Amanda” is short on money she needs to buy medications.

The other imposter, @alb4386, recently wrote an Instagram post claiming she’s $63 short from buying meds and needs fans to Venmo her more money.

The real Amanda has been telling her followers not to believe the imposters, calling out the fake accounts on her verified account. She’s tweeted over the past few years:

Ugh. So frustrating!

Unlike the fakes have been claiming she’s broke and pregnant, Amanda is doing financially well and thriving in fashion school.

Her attorney, who thinks the same person is behind both fakes, says Twitter told them the account is a parody and therefore doesn’t violate rules. Instagram allegedly told Tamar that it doesn’t violate their policy either.

Uh… a fake account asking fans for money is no parody — that’s an actual scam. Why are the social sites allowing this to happen? Hasn’t Amanda suffered enough!?
